A comforting guide to help kids through this tough time
Divorce is never easy for kids. When parents divorce, children often experience confusion, sadness and anger. These emotions can overwhelm kids and get in the way of their social and emotional well-being. And at the same time, parents are likely feeling stressed and vulnerable, and may not be capable of helping their child cope during this difficult time.
Written specifically for children, this workbook will guide kids through a number of difficult scenarios that can arise during a divorce, such as what to do if one parent says mean or untrue things about the other parent; what to do if a parent asks a child to keep secrets from another parent; or what to do if one parent attempts to replace the other parent with a new spouse, and more. Also included are tips and exercises to hlep kids deal with the negative impact of high-conflict divorce or custody disputes, understand and identify their feelings, cope with stress and other complex emotions, and--most importantly--feel safe and secure during the divorce process.
128 pages, 10 x 8 x .3 inches, black and white illustrations, paperback.
